Book Description:
"The history of Amphitryon and Alcmene, or rather the myth of the birth of Hercules, is certainly very old, and is to be found in the literature of different nations." Under Moliere's touch, it becomes "One of the most charming and natural comedies composed in French verse.... Sprightliness and vivacity abound in this comedy...." - Summary by Translator Henri Van Laun Cast list: Mercury, in the form of Sosia: Nemo Night: Eva Davis Jupiter, in the form of Amphitryon: Larry Wilson Mercury, in the form of Sosia: Nemo Amphitryon, general of the Thebans: Tomas Peter Argatiphontidas, Theban Captain: Jim Locke Naucrates, Theban Captain: alanmapstone Polidas, Theban Captain: Adrian Stephens Pausicles, Theban Captain: Leanne Yau Sosia, Amphitryon's servant: ToddHW Alcmene, Amphitryon's wife: Availle Cleanthis, Alcmene's maid, Sosia's wife: Sonia Stage Directions: Foon Edited by: ToddHW
